6 Kurta Styles that all women should know about!

Hello everyone,

Kurtas are such a staple piece in most of our wardrobes, be it a college-goer or the corporates, there is a style for each one of us. When I was in college, I was obsessed with wearing a new mufti everyday and tried not to repeat them again in the week and again when I started working, this obsession grew even more. There are so many varieties and styles of Kurtas available in the market as well as online and the best part is, there are some brands that want to bring these styles to us at a pocket-friendly price too.

One such brand is RANGRITI, that offers a range of bright and colourful Kurtas online for every woman out there. ‘Rang’- meaning colour and ‘Riti’- meaning fashion or trend; Rangriti brings out a line that is a fine blend of feminine cuts and beautiful shades in sync with the latest fashion trends. After going through their vast collection of Kurtas online, here are some of the styles I feel that every woman should have in her closet. I have   also talked about how to style kurtas in different ways in this previous post HERE.

Straight Fit Kurtas:

These kind of Kurtas are amazing to create an illusion of a taller body. You can dress them up or down as per the occasion and the place and pair them up with leggings or distressed jeans for a more indo-western look. Add a piece of chunky jewellery and you are good to go. monsoon-collection-by-rangriti-3-min

Asymmetrical Kurtas:

These kurtas are great for office wear and you can even alter the look by pairing them with straight fit silk pants or palazzos instead of leggings. Try adding some basic jewellery to go for a more Indian look.celebrate-the-spirit-of-mothers-day-with-an-exclusive-collection-of-rangriti-420x300

Anarkali style Kurtas:

For me, these are one of the most elegant Kurta styles and suits every body type. They are available in either different lengths, knee-length or ankle length and can be paired with pretty kolhapuri chappals on a casual day and high-heels for weddings and other special occasions. Accessorize the outfit with a pair of pom-pom earrings and see how you are going to be the talk of the town.

Denim-style Kurta:

Ok, so this is a style that’s quite new to me and with the whole trend of denim and chambray going on everywhere, why not flaunt this fabric with your Kurtas! I found some amazing collection of denim-styled Kurtas on Rangriti’s online website. Here’s my favourite pick.screen-shot-2016-11-14-at-9-34-56-pm

Maxi style kurtas:

So these are just like anarkalis, but with lesser flares, that makes them look just like as if you are wearing a cotton maxi dress. You can wear them with regular leggings or wear them as maxi dresses with a waistcoat or a cropped denim jacket and add a jhola to your shoulder, and you have the perfect college look. You can get some inspiration from these pictures too.

Double-layered kurtas:

These kurtas are just what they sound like. They give an illusion of two different layers of fabric and some of them are even detachable and can be worn as single pieces too. These are relatively newer styles, but are extremely flattering and trendy.mothers-day-collection-by-rangriti-3

Other than these 6 styles, there are also the basic princess cut kurtas that most of us were introduced to at the beginning of our kurta journeys. They can be worn with leggings or even skinny jeans and are the most comfortable for the college-goers or those who have no time to dress up to office everyday.

You would definitely love the Rangriti collections and just for all the BIBA lovers, Rangriti is their sister brand. The brand has made sure to bring all the high-end fashion to their consumers at a very affordable and attractive price , which makes it easier for the women to be fashionable everyday. They have a wide range of pretty kurtas, kurtis,  pallazzos, skirts and dupattas in beautiful, bright prints and colours  bringing freshness, variety & style to every woman’s closet. Make sure to checkout the Rangriti online website for their latest collections.

Sareez.com- A one stop solution to all your ethnic wear shopping problems!

Hola,

I love dressing up in Indian ethnic wear and I can any day say that I prefer a saree over anarkalis or lehengas because of the fact that it makes every woman look classy and sexy in them. The fact that there’s so much variation to sarees in terms of fabric, design and even the way you style them, makes it even more awesome to flaunt them. I like my sarees to be simpler in designs or usually prefer light-weight fabrics like Chiffon, Georgette or Cotton.

When Sareez.com contacted me to try out their sarees, I was ecstatic, one because I’d seen so many great reviews about them on YouTube and two, because I had so many weddings to attend and they just made my life a lot easier.

About Sareez:

“Sareez is one of the largest and the most recognized online stores for Indian ethnic wears. Founded in 2009, Sareez, today, has emerged to be a globally loved and preferred provider of a variety of Indian ethnic attires including Sarees, Salwar Kameez, Lehengas, Sherwani, Kaftans and more. We are based out of Kolkata, West Bengal, India. We at Sareez boast of our team of designers and craftsmen, who works together to make our dream of defining Indian ethnicity come alive.”

I had been delaying this post from quite sometime because the pictures weren’t that great and didn’t come out as I’d planned thanks to the horrible horrible weather in Chennai. Within minutes, my makeup was just melting like a crazy monkey and it all showed up in the pictures. Nonetheless, I still wanted to put them up for the simple fact that the sarees still looked super gorgeous and makeup or my face really shouldn’t be a topic of botheration right. I think we all are friends enough to give me a Hall Pass for this 😀

So I picked up 3 beautiful sarees, two for me and one for my mommy. Before I left Chennai, we had a mini family photoshoot (you’ll see my awesome family in the pictures below) and I wore this pretty green saree with a beautiful hint of yellow, golden and pink to it. The moment I saw this saree on the website, I knew I had to get this. It was so simple, yet there was something so beautiful in the colour and how it looked. Mommy dear wore this pretty purple Banarasi saree which according to her is definitely not for summers. It’s kind of makes you feel super hot but otherwise, the saree is amazingly made and has a great finnish to it. The best part about sareez.com is that they even have the option of getting the blouse and the petticoat pre-stitched while ordering from their website, which is a pretty good and saves you time and trips to the tailor. But make sure to give the right measurements or it can be a big pain and definitely a waste of money.

The second saree I got  from Sareez.com was this beautiful beautiful browny-yellow georgette saree which is super light-weighted and is comfortable to wear too. I think this is one saree that I won’t mind wearing the entire day without worrying about tripping over it. The floral design makes it all the more fun to wear it and also  received a beautiful boat neck blouse in a contrasting red colour which goes so well with the saree. The fabric feels really soft and is perfect for  office wear especially if you live in cities that are humid and hot. Mind you guys, I haven’t put any makeup on because my skin was acting crazy and I didn’t want it to become worse by putting makeup on. So if you plan to give any hate comments, please stay away from the blog!!!

The shipping did take some time for one of the sarees but the other two came pretty quickly. They have quite an amazing collection of sarees, suits and lehengas and are decently priced too. Apart from that they also have a LIVE CHAT option which according to me is quite good as any query can be clarified quickly without going through the hassles of sending them emails and waiting for a reply for ages. I highly recommend Sareez.com to all those who are looking for a variety in ethnic Indian wear and also want a good value for their money.

Which is your favorite saree among the three? Do you love wearing sarees? Make sure to let me know in the comments section below as I would love to know your thoughts on it.

A Blockbuster Superphone with Supertainment|Le 1s Eco| New Launch

Hello everyone,

If you follow me on Snapchat (aishwaryamohan7) or Instagram, you’ll know that I recently attended the launch of Le 1s Eco at the famous Mehboob Studios in Mumbai which was an event filled with great lights, bollywood performances and of course lots of glitz and glamour too. (PS: I saw Siddharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez real close :D)

I have already reviewed the LeEco Le 1s and you can read my views about it Here and Here. The new Le 1s Eco looks somewhat the same as it’s predecessor except for a slight difference in it’s look but there’s a lot more it offers than any other phone you would find in the market in terms of entertainment. Now you may be wondering a phone with entertainment means, it’s music player or video player. But no! It’s a lot more than that. Want to know how? Le 1s ECO- flash sale, supertainment, blockbuster phone

During the launch event, we got to know that LeEco has partnered with Eros Now, which is one of the biggest production houses bringing some of the best movies in theares and now Le 1s Eco users can access to more than 2000 movies through Levidi app on their new phones. Not just movies, but all users will have access to 100+ TV channels on the LIVE app,  another partnership with Yupp TV. For all music lovers, in collaboration with Hungama Music, now you can also listen to millions of songs ranging from English, Hindi and many other languages right on your Le 1s Eco phone through the LeMusic app. The cool part that attracted me the most is that you can even witness LIVE MUSIC CONCERTS through your phone without worrying about buying tickets or travelling anywhere. All from the comfort of your home with just this wonderful phone!Le 1s ECO- flash sale, supertainment, blockbuster phone

As part of its LeEco Membership, users also also get 5TB of cloud storage space! All this for just 490 INR per month or 4900 INR per year. But wait! Here’s the awesome part, all these features along with the phone would come up to 10999 + 4900 INR but NO, the cool people from LeEco decided to give us all these awesome things for just 9999 INR which is a really great deal. A really stylish looking phone along with so many good features from good camera to good entertainment or I must say #Supertainment for just 9999 INR is the best ever deal one can find in the current market.Le 1s ECO- flash sale, supertainment, blockbuster phone

So if you are impressed by LeEco’s Blockbuster phone just like me, then you definitely need to head over to Flipkart for their upcoming FLASH SALE. You’ll need to register yourself to participate in the FLASH SALE and you can get the Le 1s Eco along with 1 year of LeEco Membership for all the #Supertainment content for worth 4900 INR for just an amount of 9999 INR!. The first and second flash sales on 12th and 19th May were great successes and I’m sure this Superphone is going to be a super duper hit just like their previous ones. Now go grab your Le 1s Eco soon before it goes out of stock!

PAC Cosmetics First Impressions| Mini Review|Best Affordable Makeup Brand

Hello ladies,

There are so many makeup brands coming up with new launches every other day but not every day would you find a brand that sells international grade makeup products at a pocket friendly price. PAC COSMETICS or Professional Artist Cosmetics, a German brand created by 3 Indians has a vision to provide quality products at the optimum price range possible throughout the world.

When PAC Cosmetics sent me some of their makeup products and tools I was ecstatic to try them all as I’ve previously used one of their makeup brushes which is compared with the much raved MAC brushes, but obviously at a much lower price. I’m still new to makeup and buying high-end makeup products is not something that I prefer now, hence PAC cosmetics was the best thing that happened to me. You want to know why? Read my review or first impressions about all the PAC products here…

  1. PAC Beauty Blender: You know how we all dream of owning the original Beauty Blender but still many of us can’t due to it’s ridiculously high price. Well, PAC Cosmetics will solve that problem for you all as this product is so affordable and works wonders for your BASE GAME. The packaging is so cute and adorable, that any girl would fall in love with it at the very first look. I have used many other beauty blender dupes, but none of them ever came so close to the real beauty blender. The PAC beauty blender expands quite large once it’s soaked in water and is damn soft on the skin. There’s no streakiness or patchiness when you blend your foundation or concealer with this sponge and makes the base look super flawless. You can buy this here.

  2. Mini Blender Sponges: First of all, can we just adore these cute little things. Oh my god! they are so so adorable but don’t you just get deceived by these cuties as they are bombs when they are worked on the nooks and corners of your face for blending your base. The packet consists of 4 different shaped mini sponges and each can be used for under eyes, nose etc. Buy this Here.

  3. Liquid Liner Pen: Honestly, I suck at winged liner but with this amazing product, my wing game has become a lot easier and I can spend less time with the struggle. The eyeliner stays for a minimum of 4-5 hours and does not budge easily. It can be compared with the colossal liner but I would still prefer this as the pen is long and precise. You can get yours here.

  4.  Highshine Liquid Liner: I wasn’t much impressed with this liner as compared to the Liner Pen. I found it a bit difficult to apply, but that’s maybe due to my lack of skills. Also the lasting power isn’t that great too. It starts peeling off and creases after a while especially if you have oily eye lids. Get yours here.

  5. Intense Auto Kohl & Longlasting Kohl Pencil: These two products are each 350 Rs worth and are so good! The intense auto kohl is super pigmented and lasts all day long without smudging. It is auto retractable and has a smudger at the other end to give you those sexy smokey eye looks. The Kohl pencil is a sharpenable pigmented black eye pencil with a smudging tip at the other end. The jet black pigmentation is perfect to line your waterline as well as tightline your upper waterline. Buy them from Here .

All the products I received are really impressing and I must admit, in the recent years, I haven’t come across any brand that has come up with such great quality makeup products and accessories. Apart from these products, tey also have a wide range of makeup brushes, lip post and what not and they are easily available on Amazon and Flipkart. I am definitely going to checkout these products soon and maybe post another review using the new products.

My Love for sarees with Ethnic Dukaan

Hello ladies,

Hope your week is going great and women’s day around the corner, I thought why not write about something we all girls love! Shopping! Ever since I was little girl, I loved playing with my mum’s dupattas, drape them like sarees and pretend like I’m all grown up. I think that was the time when I knew that Sarees are going to be my forever love and no outfit can be a replacement for them.

Recently I came across an Indian website named ETHNIC DUKAAN that sells some of the most beautiful and elegant looking sarees I’ve come across and that too at a very affordable price all across the globe. I am a person who like to style simple sarees mostly in Silk and Georgettes and don’t like to go for too much bling bling when it comes to ethnic wear and Ethnic Dukaan lets me explore through numerous amount of silk and georgette sarees that has unique designs and will look great on all ages.

Well I think that’s the best part when you don’t have to step out of your house and hunt a good tailor who can stitch something that looks designer made.

Love at first sight with LeEco Le1s- Full review

Hello my people!

So a few days back I had posted my 3-day experience with the LeEco Le1s superphone and how I was already in love with it and if by any chance you missed that post, click here. Since I have used the phone to the best way possible for more than a week now, it’s time to post the full review barring all the complex technicalities, since that’s not definitely my genre.

DSC_2680This review is totally from a fashion blogger’s point of view and the usual things that I would look for in a phone is its camera quality- both front and rear, battery backup, audio quality and of course the processor speed. So here we go: 

Appearance: The rose gold looks absolutely chic and classy and the sleek look makes it super stylish to flaunt it like its worth millions. Hehehe! The phone doesn’t feel heavy and can be easily kept in the pocket as well as in your small clutch bag.

DSC_2679

DSC_2677

Camera: The amazing ISOCELL technology in the camera is what makes the quality of the pictures so good for such a budget friendly phone. The front camera is absolutely brilliant with 5MP and the rear camera, 13MP works pretty decently too. I was a tad bit disappointed with its performance in low light since the pictures came a bit grainy but other than that everything was perfect about the front and rear camera in this phone.

Apart from that, it even has different filters which you can use while clicking pictures itself and also use the Slo-Mo feature and take some really interesting videos too. The video quality is equally good and one can take pretty decent videos in the phone.

IMG_20160217_194046
Selfie taken with the front camera

Battery backup: This is the star feature of Le1s and you would ask why? As mentioned in my last post, the Type-C USB charger is the reason why the phone can be charged in almost an hour’s time. And for a person like me who has to use the phone to be live on the social media throughout the day, this feature works great.

12722327_450069825195482_1411600692_o

DSC_2665

 

When I didn’t have too many apps on the phone, the battery lasted for the entire day, but as I started installing more apps and some of which were games as well, I noticed that the battery was draining out in around 7-8 hours which is quite Ok, since these apps do take a lot of power. The phone also had a bit of heating issues due to excessive use but the awesome part was the fact that if you leave it idle for a few minutes, it instantly cools down due it’s metal body. I think that’s quite cool and wins me over in every way. 😀

DSC_2687

Audio: I’m not a fan of listening to music all the time, but when I listen I want the quality to be real good! And trust me guys, this phone has a super cool sound quality. The clarity is amazing and also sounds good with and without any earphones. Again a pointer for Le 1s 🙂

Though, it doesn’t come with earphones but you can use your existing earphones since it supports other external devices quite well. I have tried them with my Philips earphones and the sound quality remains absolutely perfect but I would love LeEco to come up with accessories for the phone soon.

Memory: The phone doesn’t come with an expandable memory but having 32GB of inbuilt memory is more than enough for I think most of us. I have so many apps installed and tons of photos and videos already, thanks to my selfie addiction and I still managed to have 21GB left and for me it’s commendable how we need not worry about expanding memories and all that jazz.

Fingerprint scanner: The second star in Le 1s is the fingerprint scanner which can be used to unlock the phone and even click pictures without using any buttons. All you have to do is just input your fingerprint the first time and you are all set to show-off in front of your friends and colleagues. Just place your finger and click pictures to your heart’s content and if you are a selfie addict, well you know which phone to get right 😉

DSC_2676

So here’s a thing, after using the phone for so many days, I can vouch that this phone is one of the best in the market currently available with world class features. The metallic body, the fingerprint scanner, the super fast charger and what not, you name it and LeEco Le 1s has it all. For a mere price of 10999 INR, you will not find any phone with these features. The phone looks absolutely classy in your hand and for those who want to experience iPhone(as close to it as possible) but still not want to burn a hole in the pocket, this is your best choice.

Here’s a good news! Today is the LeEco Day(25th February,2016) and from today onwards you can order the Le1s without any registration on Flipkart and not worry about registration hassles or get disappointed that the stocks ran out. Grab this opportunity and get your hands on the Le1s if you are looking out for a good phone that looks good and has amazing features and still doesn’t cost you a bomb.

If you happen to buy it or have used the LeEco Le1s, do share your experience with me in the comments section below.
